Melbourne paediatrician Les Markman is dying from leukaemia and his only hope for survival is a blood/stem cell/bone marrow transfusion from a suitable donor. The odds? 10,000-1.

Two campaigns held over the last ten days in Melbourne have proved negative and now Shula Endrey-Walder’s Gift of Life Organisation has launched a world-wide search to save the life of the 64-year-old doctor who himself has saved countless children from death.

The Sydney drive will be held this coming Sunday at Our Big Kitchen at 36 Flood St in Bondi. All healthy adults between 18 & 50 are urged to to have a simple blood test taken. The odds favour a Jewish donor.

All details are below…..

Maybe you are the one in 10,000.
